We stayed at the Ibis Budget for 3 nights and we're very happy with our choice of accommodation. The price is very affordable and the location is perfect. This property is perfect if you need a clean, comfortable room in the city close to everything. I have to mention the reception staff are very efficient. We had 5 rooms booked...

Stayed here for about a week and was very happy with what I got for the price I paid. This is not gold standard but I feel I got more than I paid for considering other places and prices on offer, The good: great front desk service; clean towels and soap every day; quiet; sheets changed halfway through stay; free...

Super happy with value for money in our stay there. Our room was situated perfectly away from all outside noise from street and other hotel users. Bed was comfy, room was modern and nice. Tv was huge. Would have liked a bathroom mat and a PowerPoint in the bathroom. Or a second mirror on the room.

The window was very small and partially blanked out by some sort of tape. It overlooked a very small, narrow atrium that also added to the darkness. So I had to keep the light on all day otherwise I couldn't see around the room.

This hotel is very well located on Elizabeth Street, good size room, quiet, comfortable bed, the toilet is in a room the size of a broom closet, the shower is separated from the bed by a curtain, the air conditioner in the window meant the curtain had to stay open, tea and coffee facilities but no hair dryer.

No faults, good budget hotel right in city centre of Melbourne. Got a bedroom facing away from the main road on the top floor which meant a quiet nights sleep during my stay. Clean and comfortable room and bed, house cleaning was done every morning with fresh towels and soap provided. It was not an issue for myself as I...

This by far exceeded expectations for Budget accomodation. Amazingly friendly staff, lovely clean rooms. Breakfast available if required for minimal cost. Best position imaginable, right in the centre of Melbourne, no car required, just jump on a free tram. Recommended to all

My experience with Ibis Budget Melbourne CBD was terrible. It was pretty much a smelly hostel. I have stayed in budget before and this is a step below budget. From the second you walked in the building you were greeted with a revolting smell, sadly this continued into the rooms. I had to buy perfume at the local shops and...

This is a great option for people on a budget who want clean, basic accommodation right in the hear of Melbourne CBD. Our room was spacious, had a comfy bed, a sofa, fridge and kettle and a huge TV! It was clean and the shower was powerful. The room is advertised as basic, but we've stayed in many other places...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
